Experiences during a small retreat in Bodh Gaya, Bihar, India (16.-26.01.2018)

Apart from learning from teachers or books and from applying what we have learned to the new experiences and events we encounter in our daily lives, I personally believe that we can enhance our own practice by going on a retreat, either on one’s own or in a group.

The fact that Bodh Gaya, India, is the place where the Buddha attained enlightenment and where many great spiritual practitioners stay and perform meditation rituals makes the atmosphere of the place “something special”. That’s the main reason why I chose to come here (again).

Situated in one of the poorest areas of India, the utter yet kind of charming chaos and messiness of the village helps “unlock” or “loosen up” the controlling and too square tendency in me. This unique place helps me learn fast to adapt myself to new environments and take things as they are.

By means of my project “Dhammarts” I have been promoting meditation and its benefits in everyday life. Many scientific and medical researches attest that continued practice of noticing the changing nature of the body and mind through meditation can, for instance, result in an increasing awareness and a reduction in stress. This process – coming to know the truth and developing oneself – can be freely practiced by everyone, at anytime, in any place, regardless of race, community or religion.

During this trip, I also had the rare opportunity to meet one of the greatest non-sectarian spiritual leaders and a tireless worker for peace of our time – the Dalai Lama. I was so touched to experience him as a humble person and to listen to his teachings: >> We can make a significant contribution to the world humanity by cultivating our own inner peace. << (addressed at Watpa Bodhgaya on 25.01.2018). “Hygiene of emotions” is the universal and timeless aspect to be practiced for our own inner peace and mental health, which certainly again affects our physical health.

Irrespective of race, social status, religion etc., he treats everybody equally with humbleness, kindness, love and compassion – something he embodies naturally. To witness that was very inspiring for me, especially considering, as you know, the kind of background he comes from and what kind of difficulties he had to face.

Many thanks to everyone and everything that allowed me to have these experiences during this retreat, which will remain with me – always,
